I got a message from someone on MSN - it was a fake message from a virus, containing a link. I took care not to click the link, but sent a message on Facebook to that person to warn her that her hotmail account was hacked, and when I pasted the MSN message in the facebook one, facebook automatically opened that link that I didnt want to click, and gave me a preview! What happens when that link is clicked is that your MSN address is automatically added to a spam database and you will receive spam. Facebook did that for me, without asking. I might leave facebook soon, it used to be serious and safe, but now it is going down the road of hi5 and other before it. You can find me on orkut, which is btw faster and safer, and better quality software. What attracted me to facebook is how it gave me better control.

@ debtor: Do look into flickr, it's great. But it's entirely different of course, and it will only serve you as a picture platform, not as a connect&share platform. I agree that the news stream of FB has gotten rather cluttered with all those quizzes that have taken over. And the usability and layout of the various features is not really intuitive either. BUT: as a tool to quickly find out what's generally happening in my "outer" circle or people I know, it is unparalled so far. Only twitter is slowly gaining ground. If twitter would offer some more profile- and dialogue features, so that (for example) things like photos are accessible in a gallery style, and comments people have on certain tweets are directly accessible from those tweets, or conversations between people are visible in a linear fashion, then twitter would quickly outgrow FB both in terms of relevance and quantity of usage and users.

I think that facebook is on a downward spiral. All it needs to finally crash is another site that doesn what facebook used to do well. For me, the appeal of facebook was that it was CLEAN. Many people don't know about hi5 but it was popular amongst non-Americans and was pretty much the same concept as facebook. People loved it. Untill ads took over. Then people were allowed to add music. It made the site cluttered and slow to load and now barely anyone uses it. We all migrated to facebook. It seems like facebook is going the same way. I'm not so much against the ads as I understand he needs to make money. The ads don't take over the page at any rate so they can be ignored. The problem is all the apps that have been added and show up on you newsfeed (do i really care that Amy took the what bird are you most like quiz and is an ostrich?) and the addition of all these random sections that make the site to busy. Seriously, what is the difference between newsfeed and highlights? Why is there a photo feature on the left but to really see new photos you have to click the application button on the bottom? Why is events hidden? Isn't that something people want to know. Why do they now list everyone's birthday for the week? It was so much cleaner when you signed on and say a list of people who's birthday was TODAY. You can see I have a lot of issues with fbook. The only reason I'm still on it is because a lot of my pics are saved on it and i haven't found an alternative. After reading this article, I'm going to look into flickr.

Thanks for reading Roland! I've already expressed my view (with more certainty than the reality merits--because otherwise everyone's views would be dull to read ;-) ) The only additional comment I would make: Yes it is tedious to use so many different vendors for the services we want--and yet the web has remained incredibly resistant to centralization.

The key points for facebook to maintain its popularity with a large and diverse audience will be to allow users to easily filter out what they don't need/want, and to allow each user to create a truly personal experience.
